Things to do: This week

MON 6 - SUN 12 NOV

Rambert Revealed
■ South Bank, London ■ Mon 6 – Sun 12 Nov

Rambert is one of my favourite dance companies so I’m excited about this week-long programme opening up the work of the company through performances, tours and workshops at their studios on London’s South Bank. New additions to this year’s programme include a live drawing session of company rehearsals and a residency from ERRATICA, who will spend a month at Rambert developing a prototype for a new interactive dance film installation. Can’t quite be bothered to go into London for the experience? Rambert Live will livestream of a day in the life of the company, so you can wear your leg warmers and stretch out from the comfort of your sofa. 


Rules For Living
■ Rose Theatre, Kingston ■ Tue 7 Nov- Sat 18 Nov

Sam Holcroft’s darkly funny play ‘Rules for Living’, is coming to the Rose Theatre, following its critically acclaimed run at the National Theatre in 2015. The play is set on Christmas day where each family member must stick to their own rules for example, Edith must clean to keep calm and Mathew must sit to tell a lie. As the drinks flow and the games intensify relationships are pulled apart with a bang! Tickets range from £15- £35. Tickets from aged 26 and under: £8.


Cosi fan Tutte 
■ New Victoria Theatre, Woking ■ Tue 7 Nov- Sat 11 Nov

The Glyndebourne Tour offers an opportunity to see two live performance direct from the internationally acclaimed Glyndebourne festival. This glorious period production of ‘Cosi Fan Tutte’ has cheeky double dare results, false pretences and true love. The Stage magazine described it as “visually elegant.” Tickets from £21.90.


Barber of Seville 
■ New Victoria Theatre, Woking ■  Wed 8 Nov- Sat 11 Nov

Showcasing some of the most famous pieces in the operatic repertoire, Rossini’s Barber of Seville turns the battle of the sexes into a battle of the wits. Barber of Seville will be sung in Italian with English supertitles. Tickets from £21.90.


London Jazz Festival

Sounds of the Sirens
■ The Boileroom, Guildford ■ Fri 10 Nov

Duo Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood harmonise stunningly performing their debut album, For All Our Sins. Be left with a sense of wonder after listening to this charming acoustic pop collection mixed with lyrical sensibility. Sounds of the Sirens were invited to perform alongside U2 and Take That on TFI Friday last year. Their unforgettable performances are infused with energy, warmth, humour and real conviction. Tickets are £10. (Entry requirements: 10+)


Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark
■ G Live, Guildford ■ Sat 11 Nov

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s is touring their new album The punishment of luxury. The synth- pop group was founded almost 40 years ago by two teenage Kraftwerk fans, whose early albums shaped the prevailing sounds of that decade. OMD helped to introduce this new genre with hits such as Enola Gay, Electricity and Souvenir. So as their lyrics suggest, get boogying and ‘Bend your body to the will of the machine.’ Tickets are £38.50.


■ G Live, Guildford ■ Sat 11 Nov

Leaf is a warm, intimate and playful theatrical new piece for the under 3s. It is framed with an evocative soundscape which is perfect for the very young. At the end of the performance, children are invited onto the stage to play among the leaves and explore a landscape created by the changing seasons. Ticket for a Parent with child aged 3 or under: £15.50.
